VALE residents who were born in the same year as HM The Queen are being invited to a tea party being held in honour of the monarch’s landmark birthday.
The search began on Monday (April 4) for people across Worcestershire who were born in the same year as HM The Queen – 1926.
Her Majesty is celebrating her 90th birthday this year and to mark the event her local representative, the Lord-Lieutenant of Worcestershire, and the Mayor of Worcester are hosting Tea for The Queen, a party for county residents who will also be turning 90 this year.
Marks and Spencer are sponsoring this right royal event, which will be held in Worcestershire’s county town at Worcester Guildhall on Saturday, June 11 – the date of The Queen’s official birthday.
Applications for Tea for The Queen tickets are open from today.
Lord-Lieutenant of Worcestershire, Lt Col Patrick Holcroft, said: “The Queen’s 90th birthday is an occasion for national celebration.
“I am delighted to be jointly hosting Tea for The Queen, as it will give Worcestershire people who are reaching the same milestone as Her Majesty the chance to join the celebrations of her remarkable reign.
“It will be a great pleasure to spend the afternoon in their company and hear their stories of the last nine decades,” he added.
Application forms for the event are available online at www.wychavon.gov.uk and from Broadway Library, Evesham Community Contact Centre, Pershore Community Centre and Pershore Library.
Forms need to be completed by Friday, May 6 to Tea Party for The Queen, Guldhall, High Street, Worcester WR1 2EY.
